Wooohoo! First commenter!! First I want to thank Muldernscully for all their great reviews. I was ready to hate Robert Patrick, but he is too damn good and too believable. Some of the best actors (Robert Patrick in this case) have an "affected" persona - they are not playing it real, they are caricatures, like DeNiro - nobody really talks like that, the "affected" voice is more interesting than a normal, pragmatic sounding voice. I see he is from Georgia, but he uses the New Yorker accent and style. Scully does an affected voice also, mostly with her vocal pacing. Its gotten much better since season 1.
Anyways, if you have made it this far in the series, you will make it to the bitter end, so lets just say the episode is nothing special, the femme fatale is cute, and the antagonist is intense and menacing. If the acting had been less good, I would have given it a 6.
I also enjoy Scully verrrrrrry cautiously taking on the Mulder role, suggesting the fantastic, although you can see she is loathe to do it. So apparently Doggett is the new Scully. It will be interesting to see if that dynamic changes over the rest of the season, sometimes Doggett takes the leap that Scully will not. If so I will write about it here on IMDb.
